go. >> why did mike nichols choose you? >> long answer or short answer. >> long answer. >> i mean you obviously had talent but why did he choose you? because redford was sort of the model if you listened to the description of what benjamin was. >> it's in the book. >> yes. >> six feet, blond hair, blue eyes, member of the track team, debating squad. >> none of that is you. >> none, none, none. boston, program im, you know. i think he tested redford. he tested a lot of people over a period of a year and a half or something. and he was scraping the bottom of the barrel by the time he got to me. i don't think he knew anything about me. people said i was in a play-off broadway that got very good reviews. and i don't think he saw it i think he was told about it. so he sent it to me to read. and i read the script. and then i went and got the book and i read the book. and i had a panic attack. i thought why are they trying to ruin my career, which is just beginning now. you know because i'm starting to get parts, character parts, you know, and here is a leading man. and i turned down the

the n.f.l., a quarter back for mike ditka. a quarterback for a long time in the n.f.l. so he had the road paved for him a little bit better than john did. now, if you tell jim that he's a silver spoon guy he'll knock your teeth out! because he, too, worked his rear end off to get where he is today. and he is a really, really smart coach. and i think the one thing i like about both these guys is they refuse to do what everybody else does. they're fine in breaking the mold. they'll break the mold any way they think will help their team and that's one of the things -- i think these are two new coaches for the new n.f.l. they're both young, they're 50 and 48 i think. and they have idea that i'm not going to do it the way my predecessors did it. i'm going to look at my team and see the best way for my team and i'll make a decision that might rankle people. if i'm jim harbaugh i might play this young quarterback from nevada and i might sit the guy who's the best quarter back in the n.f.l. in terms of statistics because i think this guy is going to give us something the other guy can't give

market, or are stocks simply more attractive? u.b.s. bond expert mike schumacher says its the later. >> i think it's more exiting some of the safe haven positions they had in bonds rather than saying bonds themselves look unappealing for other reasons. >> reporter: when the u.s. government was teetering on the edge of default, the bond market looked like a good place to hide. and, now that it seems politics are out of the headlines, there's less of a need for investors to hunker down. but, some bond market pros say political risk is not going away for long. they point to the march first deadline for government spending cuts as a reason for investors to come back into bonds. >> it's always hard to parse the dialogue coming out of washington. but, it seems like the republicans want the sequester actually to go forward which would put the breaks on the economy at least to an extent and drive more people back into bonds. >> reporter: others say any return to bonds may be short- lived, as the u.s. economy is showing new signs of strength. >> i think we expect more improvements, moderate

francisco america's greenest city. >> reporter: c.e.o. and president mike sangiacamo took us on a tour of recology's sprawling 22-acre composting facility northeast of san francisco. >> in terms of food waste composting, this is as good as it gets. we're creating a product that can be used on the soil to replenish nutrients that growing food crops take out of the soil. >> reporter: food scraps and yard clippings brought here-- some 400 tons a day- are turned into rich compost that is now being used by vineyards in napa and sonoma. in the rest of the nation, where composting is a rarity, 97% of food waste is disposed of in landfills, and that causes environmental problems, according to regional epa director jared blumenfeld. >> about half the food we buy from the supermarket ends up going into the landfill. that's unacceptable. the stuff that rots and smells produces methane, which is a very, very potent greenhouse gas. and even if there's a cover on the top of just soil and stuff, that goes into the atmosphere and is really contributing in a large way to climate change issues. >>
